This year, Prevent Breast Cancer are very grateful to have partnered with local firm Sinclair Law Solicitors to provide a free Will writing service. The partnership offers professionally-written, simple Wills to individuals and couples, whilst providing support to Prevent Breast Cancer and our vision of a future free from breast cancer.
Making a Will is an easy way to look after your loved ones by seeing that they are provided for after your death. With the help of our amazing supporters, we can continue our prevention research to make breast cancer a thing of the past for future generations.
Why make a Will?
This is one of the most important documents you will ever write and allows you to decide what happens to your money, property and possessions after your death. If it is up to date, it provides you with the security that your wishes are complied with and gives your family and friends ease in dealing with your estate following death.
A Will is all about choice, it is a legal document that sets out your wishes and expressions regarding the distribution of your property and estate should you pass away. There are a number of things which should be considered when preparing this document, which is why it is important to ensure that you are receiving thorough advice and guidance.
To take advantage of the scheme, please complete the ‘expression of interest’ form below, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to request one. Once Sinclair Law have your contact information a solicitor will contact you to discuss your instructions and prepare draft documents for your approval. When this is approved we can complete the document for signing.
In accordance with the scheme, Prevent Breast Cancer will pay the solicitor’s fees for a simple Will. There is no obligation for you to leave a gift or to make a donation when using the Free Will Writing Service but we’d be very grateful if you’d consider it. This can be discussed with the solicitor when making use of the service.
If your instruction is more complex than a simple Will, you will be told about this and then asked to pay the difference between the nominal fee (paid by Prevent Breast Cancer) and the actual fee.

Why leave a gift to Prevent Breast Cancer?
We know the first priority is providing for your loved ones, but many people find they have a little left over to give to a cause that is close to their hearts. Leaving a gift for Prevent Breast Cancer could make a huge difference. It costs nothing for you in your lifetime but will help to create a future free of breast cancer for future generations.
If you decide to leave us a gift it will be greatly appreciated by the families who have been helped by our research. By letting us know that you have left Prevent Breast Cancer a gift in your Will, it helps us to plan our future research projects with more confidence. While it is not legally binding and you can of course change your mind at any time, it does help the charity to plan ahead.
There are two ways to remember Prevent Breast Cancer through a gift:
- A residual gift – you can leave a percentage of what is left – no matter how big or small. This type of legacy is the most valuable to the charity as it will keep pace with inflation and won’t affect what your friends and family receive. It can also reduce the need for regularly updating your will.
- A pecuniary gift – this a set amount of money. The value of this amount can decrease over time with inflation, for example a gift of £1,000 pledged today will be less valuable in future years as the cost of living increases.
To request more information on leaving a gift please contact the Prevent Breast Cancer team on 0161 291 4400 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
